Battery Not Charging Beyond 80% After Android 12 Update, Is there a fix?

When this particular issue has been escalated via the Issue Tracker, the team has released a statement regarding it. According to them, it’s always a better idea to help preserve the battery health on the device if your phone automatically limits charging to about 80% under certain conditions:

  • Continuous charge under high battery drain conditions like gameplay or continuous charge for 4 days or more. So, you should keep an eye on it.

Whereas there are some possible workarounds mentioned below that should work for you. So, without wasting any more time, let’s jump into it.

  1. You should stop using the ‘Optimizing for battery health’ feature on the Android 12 system that can be found under Always-On Display or from the Battery section via Settings.
  2. Also, make sure to simply unplug your Pixel phone from its charger or remove it from Pixel Stand, and try charging again.
  3. Switch off your Pixel device and wait for around 10 minutes then you can try connecting to the charger again.
  4. Make sure to check whether the charging adapter and the USB cable are working properly or not. Try using the same charger on another Android device to check if it charges the battery or not.
  5. Check for the loose connectivity or charging ports on your Pixel phone too.
  6. If there is some dust or moisture inside the charging port on your Pixel device then we’ll recommend cleaning the dust/moisture gently using a dry cloth.
  7. Try charging the device in Safe Mode or while the device is powered off completely. Just press and hold the Power button for a few seconds to appear in the power menu then tap & hold the Restart option to bring Safe Mode. Now, select it, and your device reboots into the Safe Mode. It basically disables third-party apps or services on the device so that you can troubleshoot if any app is causing such an issue or not.
  8. If nothing works then try troubleshooting the screen too. Make sure to press the Power button for about 30 seconds > Then wait for about 2 minutes and make your phone ring via the Find My Device option or using another phone. If your phone rings but nothing is visible on the screen, then the chances are high that there are some issues with the software or your display. So, get it checked & repaired by a professional.
  9. Try connecting the Pixel device to the computer using a USB cable and check if the phone is charging or not.
  10. You can also try power cycling your device if an Android robot logo appears and the word ‘Start’ with an arrow around it. Just press the Volume Down button until you see the option to ‘Power off’ then press the Power button to perform ‘Power off’. Make sure to charge your phone for at least 30 minutes then press and hold the Power button for a few seconds. Once done, tap on Restart, or press and hold the Power button for around 30 seconds until your phone restarts.
  11. If none of the workarounds come in handy, then contact Google Pixel Support if your device is under warranty or get it repaired from a local professional.
